The management of Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba of the Central Region are calling on the general public to identify 36 bodies in its morgue.
This is ahead of a scheduled mass burial of unclaimed bodies in a bid to decongest the hospital’s mortuary.
Speaking to our reporter, the Assistant Administrator of the Trauma and Specialist Hospital, Mr. Ebenezer Annor indicated that the public has 21 days to claim bodies of their deceased relatives else they would be buried en masse.
“The Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba intends to embark on a mass burial of about 36 bodies which have not been claimed. These 36 bodies have been in our morgue for more than three months. So we encourage anybody who has an idea of a missing person or any relative who is dead and is in our morgue but has not yet been identified should come and identify the body so that we don’t add it to the mass burial’ Mr. Annor said
Mr. Annor explained that ‘ any family member who comes to identify their dead body and does so properly, the body will not be added to the ones we intend to bury after the 21 days deadline ‘.
To this end, Mr. Ebenezer Annor clarified that ‘ bodies that we know their owners will not be part of the mass burial’.
